In the middle of the night, criminals Akeem Mallory and Todd Davenport kicked in the door of 76-year-old Eugene Johnson in Carlisle, Pa. Once inside the criminals announced to the inhabitants that they had a firearm. Johnson, a retired Army sergeant and Korean War veteran, retrieved his pistol and announced to the criminals that he too was armed and aiming right at them. The burglars fled. The police eventually tracked down both Mallory and Davenport and they were taken into custody. At the burglars’ sentencing, Cumberland County Judge Kevin A. Hess congratulated Johnson on his actions stating. “My hat is off to you.” Even the attorney for one of the defendants noted that the criminals are “lucky they weren’t killed.”
